NEST Fragrances – Wild Mint & Eucalyptus Candle Review
NEST New York or NEST Fragrances or simply just NEST, however you’d like to refer to the brand, is one I’ve heard many great things about and not really any bad at all. This had me super interested in trying out something from the brand, but I’m not really super into candles or diffusers or anything like those that the brand seems to specialize in, so I never pulled the trigger and bought anything until I saw a mini/deluxe sample of their Wild Mint & Eucalyptus Candle as (I believe) a point perk while checking out at Sephora a while ago and decided to try it out.
I’m really, really impressed to say the least. This candle is the candle that has changed my mind about candles. I never have been a “candle person” so to speak, and I only really have ever used candles if I received them as gifts or won them in a giveaway or something like that. I’ve never really gone out of my way to purchase a candle, much less a luxury candle at luxury prices. However, the wonderful scent, lasting power, and ability to fill a room without being overpowering or obnoxious has totally changed my mind about luxury candles, at least from this particular brand.
The name of this candle may strike some as bland, boring, or unoriginal – mint and eucalyptus are pretty well known for being a complementary combination, and are frequently paired for this reason. However, I’ve never smelled something done quite like this before. It’s just the right balance between familiar, unique, and refreshing: all in one lil candle! It also literally FILLS the ENTIRE room it’s in and maybe the whole house in some cases, but in the best, most non-intrusive way possible that will leave any guests wondering “what’s that wonderful scent I smell???”!
I’ve never ever been even really tempted to purchase a full-size luxury candle, or even really any candle to be honest with you, but this one is seriously just different. It’s just that good, and I will almost definitely be repurchasing this in the full size once my deluxe sample has been burned through. I can’t recommend this candle, this brand, and this particular scent enough. It’s music to my… nose? Lol, but really. It’s so damn good.
